Negative, Ghost Rider

 Here is the quote regarding the release of Gibbs and Priestley:

This would also apply to PAC.

Again that was the rumor last night. I was coming back to post today it was their inability to get into the country. However Havoc's situation is much different and from people I talked to given the allegations he won't be coming back. Havoc also had the bar incident with Excalibur as well. Havoc is a great death match wrestler but he's also a very good in ring wrestler who is underrated as many don't get to see that side of him. Havoc's issue is he's a hothead at times which can and will get him in trouble. Despite that he's fairly easy to work with but he does need to control his anger and stuff. When he was drinking the anger was even worse. When you see sober Jimmy you'd never suspect the other side. It's unfortunate as he's a great talent and I've been following Jimmy for a good while. 

As for Gibbs she wasn't a huge talent and AEW saw her more of a project. She was very athletic and had a good look and was good looking but she was still very raw in the ring. Preistley might be their biggest loss for the women's roster.

There is a Reddit user that may have spoiled next Saturday's AEW show:

 

the appearance of Eric Rowan who helps Brodie Lee beat Cody for the TNT championship

The fact that Jessi Davin on Twitter (who was invited to the tapings) flipped out over it tells me it's probably true.

Plus, both women are attached to Stardom which has seen its working relationship with AEW go slack.  Could their parent company (the same one that owns NJPW) be miffed about the Bucks and Omega forming AE Dub?  :shrug:

I've heard rumors on the issues but it's more Bucks/Codi fault them Kenny's at all.. I think the issues started and go back to Moxley's first IWGP US Title reign. At least from what I've been told. I haven't gotten much detailed info on this other then theres issues. Mendable I don't know. What the fight is about I don't know. Why they were upset with stuff in Moxley's first reign I'm not sure. Maybe Bucks/Codi unrealistic with something they wanted? Moxley being stripped of the title do to circumstances out of his control? Really don't know. Its a very weird situation overall because NPW/AEW working partnership is the most point blank obvious in pro wrestling today.

I honestly cannot stand that girl. It's not jealous either. It's the sheer fact that I believe she uses her sex appeal to get all these things. I've never had a personal issue with her on social media but know people who have. Simple as being blocked for just disagreeing with her. She's a mark for any company that gives him 15 mins. She use to be a huge WWE mark. 

However if that result is true I'm not upset over it either.

It's kind of easy to sniff out people like that.  I personally have no problem with her - other than being an Ohio State fan - but I don't tweet derogatory things to people.  Someone even created a mock account about her simply because she subtweeted the person who spoiled next week's Dynamite.  Regardless of who you are, that's not cool.

Oh trust me I don't do that either and yeah her being an Ohio State fan doesn't sit well with me (well no B1G fan sits well with me living in a state that is big PSU while liking the SEC problems arise), but I don't go and insult and harass the girl. I just hate people like her who use their body and looks then go after guys for making comments or whatever about certain girls. It's hypocritical and makes you look bad. Its no different then the ring rat girls who use to sleep around with wrestlers and then go after female wrestlers who they believe is only successful because they slept around with the right guys. I think I just don't like her because she's a fake. What I mean by that is one minute she's in love with WWE but then when WWE isn't giving her attention she then goes finds it elsewhere and right now that AEW. She loves the attention, acts like she's a real fan of company but probably isn't. I made my contacts in a professional way. I didn't use looks or anything. I was a fan or became a fan and either met them off chance or knew people who introduced me to them. Or just got lucky and noticed I was there a lot like with Adam Cole. Then I happened to by chance work with two coworkers who one worked with WWE on a part time bases and another guy who was known at CZW events since he is a regular and many of the talent and people working there knew him. I didn't go looking for these guys. 

When my Co worker told me he worked for WWE part time I didn't go bothering him to get me free tickets or backstage. Same with my other Co worker. I was invited to a CZW show 12 yrs ago. My Co worker was talking to an employee and another wrestler (Don't even know his name think he was a jobber) and my co worker mentioned to them this was my first show. How I was a huge ECW fan and he told them he told me if I liked ECW you'd like these guys in CZW and are based in Philly. No sooner did we meet they had me backstage showing me around and next thing I know I'm getting tours of the HQ and everything. I didn't ask for it.

Dam WWE may have sent a spy into AEW Jericho says the person who leaked on Reddit Eric Bischoff was an NXT Reject

While Jericho didn't reveal who the "NXT reject" was that spoiled Bischoff's appearance, he did mention that the person is never allowed back in All Elite Wrestling. 

"Social media is a different ball of wax," Jericho said. "Though, I think the amount of people who are on social media is very small compared to the overall people watching. For example, when we had the debate and Eric Bischoff was announced on Reddit and we know the spy is, by the way. Oh, we know. He'll never f---ing be back in AEW. NXT reject was a spy, so print that."

Rumor on the NXT Reject is Tito Sabatelli who use to tag with Riddick Moss in NXT. He had a dark Match the week Bischoff was taped.

No she's from the tri state area (SE PA, SENJ, NDE) and trained and competed as a semi pro in boxing and MMA in the area. Never met her but know people who did. Jersey at the time didn't have any female MMA leagues so she competed against boys and men. She went to Florida after HSGraduation and trained at American Top Team who's current and former team members include Tyrone Woodley, Amanda Nunes, Jorge Masvidal, King Mo, Junior Dos Santos, Robbie Lawler, Alessio Sakara, Glover Teixiara, Bobby Lashley, Tiago Alvaez, Dustin Poirer, Andre Arlovski  etc. When she lived in California she was ranked #9 in the state. That was when she went to the casting of Tough Enough. So yes I'd say she's a trained fighter who I think could've held her own there if she had too.

Meltzer this week decided he'd report on almost a year old information. Info that I posted around Sept/Oct Last year. It was the about wrestlers going to Cody and AEW people in WWE about possible interest AEW might have in them if they could get released by WWE and how a lot of the roster was trying to get cut from WWE some even attempting to fail multiple drug test intentionally. No surprise I was reporting Fox wanted Brock Lesnar as Champ on SDL when they first aired a year prior and around after Summserslam Meltzer came out with his first report from "his sources" about it. I like Dave for his wrestling history and such but the dude is pathetic with his "insider" info these days. Guess he can't face the facts that WWE used him for yrs and he was never anything special when it came to breaking news because he literally reported what WWE wanted out. 

Dave Meltzer reports almost a year old news as BREAKING NEWS CURRENTLY going inside WWE

Disturbing details on Sonya Deville's attempted kidnapping.  The house guest was Mandy Rose.  

Despite being a legit MMA fighter, IMO Sonya did the right thing by leaving.  MMA skills aren't of much use if your potential assailant has a knife and pepper spray.

SRS: Renee Young has given her notice to WWE

 It's not even a surprise to those in the know. WWE has been trying to force Renee out since Moxley went to AEW. I actually threw in a report on that here a few days after Moxley went to AEW WWE would try to force Renee out. This was more of a mutual decision after WWE took most of her on screen roles away. Young is too nice a person to just tell them to shove it and walk out. WWE knew that and are still mad at Jon for lying to them about signing with AEW. So they went after his wife to force her out. The last straw was most likely her testing Positive as then Jon got it and couldn't compete on AEW. Numerous talent and personal have voiced concerns over WWE's handling of this so that may have been the final straw. Young lost most of her on screen Roles and after getting the Virus probably figured why am I putting myself at risk for a company who clearly doesn't care about me anymore.

Actually numerous sites aren't giving SRS credit on it. Outkick is being credit with the initial report. However if you look back to around the time Moxley left and went to AEW I mentioned some stuff that happened and how WWE was trying to get Renee to leave WWE as they didn't want an incident of her making references to AEW and stuff as well as they were mad at Moxley.

From what I can tell, people thought she was going to announce she was pregnant because she kept teasing she had some "great news" on Twitter.  But then she announced the great news:  https://twitter.com/WWEEmberMoon/status/1294060654094163968

She was just hosting the Bud Light Twitch Rivals After Party.

Shane McMahon rumored to be in line as new Raw head writer.

WWE currently looking to hire Smackdown lead writer.

Bruce likely drunk and pilled up backstage again. Obviously he's going to get canned or reassigned soon. He has no business in creative. Best line about Prichard I read: "He's a lot better spinning things/ideas 10 years later than actually coming up with them in the now" :lmao: Truer words never spoken.

WWE has quickly discarded 3 of the biggest con men in the history of the history (Bruce/Bischoff/Heyman). Took McMahon 83 days to see Eric didn't have the work ethic. Bruce was terrible in creative 25 years ago (during their 2nd worst period in company history). Heyman was only one you could see trying to change anything but none of the talent trusted him as far as they could throw him.

I've heard only reason Vince likes Bruce is because Bruce just tells Vince what he wants to hear. A lot of people in WWE are concerned with Vince's overall health AKA Mindset these days. He's erratic, easily triggered and angered and not thinking straight. He's now second guessing himself on things he wouldn't in the past leading to More backstage chaos. Some are hoping with a change to Am-Way arena will help but not sure.

Yep of course. Hey, it's worked for him being employed there for the better part of 30 years. He's good at the political game. But don't sit there on your podcast and interviews and say you weren't a yes man. Again, nothing wrong with that. Bruce has been caught outright in blatant lies and his old revisionist history with everything and act like he wasn't a yes man for Vince.

But let's wait 10 years from now for Bruce to say how great this period was in which he was involved. :lmao: And use revisionist history.

On the bright side, at least he's on his way out of creative. Again.

I believe Jericho just retold a story Bruce did about Jericho's debut. Jericho said he saw it differently so it's no surprise. I hate people who said they aren't yes men or Kiss ###. I deal with co workers like this daily who admit they aren't but everyone knows they are and get their way because of it. But then the minute boss isn't around they are throwing them under the bus. You go to my bosses about it and they laugh it off and think you are lying. It's frustrating

Per Melissa Santos' IG story, Tessa Blanchard and Daga tied the knot.  Tessa was escorted down the aisle by Tully, who officiated part of the ceremony.  Melissa was obviously with her husband Brian Cage.  Taya Valkyrie was also seen in a couple of shots.

Thus concludes the gossip portion of this thread.

I hope Daga knows what he's getting into with that girl. Be prepared for her to call you racist names to her friends behind your back, get PO'd at you chatting with other girls because you were deemed being too friendly , all while she is probably banging a guy behind your back.

Saw I watched a replay of SDLIVE and Thunderdome. Lets just say nothing has changed. You can't expect to take the stripes off the Tiger say he's not a tiger. Samething here. You can change the atmosphere but the overall product is still horrible. I think it's getting to the point where WWE corporate and the McMahon family need to have a serious sit-down talk with Vince and have him relinquish a good portion of control to his family instead. He's clearly losing it and it's effecting every employee at this point.

#FireVelveteenDream is trending on Twitter. I have not watched Takeover 30 yet and probably won't till tomorrow after the Champions league Final but I also heard when he came out the crowd who are mostly PC wrestlers was dead silent which tells you a lot of what they think of the guy. Patric Young Dream's real name was on Tough Enough a few yrs ago and despite his talent rubbed some people including the coaches the wrong way with his cockiness and I know more about the business and WWE history then you schtick. He ultimate was let go on the show after he failed a challenge when it was announced he bragged about how easy it was. He fell flat on his face with his performance. WWE has taken a chance on Patric given he is talented but given the allegations and nothing has been proven either way yet to put him back on TV makes WWE look bad right now.
